Orange Offers £10 Samsung Galaxy SII Contract

If you are fancying a brand new mobile phone, want to stick to your existing SIM-only deal but don't want to pay the full price, then mobile phone operator Orange might have the perfect contract for you.

Available only through Dialaphone (opens in new tab), you get the phone with 30 minutes and unlimited texts for a tenner a month with an initial outlay of £209; that's a grand total of £449, cheaper than the suggested retail price of £499 and is the equivalent of a 40 per cent deposit followed by a two-year interest free loan & a free SIM card to boot from.

What's more, there's even a free Samsung Galaxy S2 SIM unlock code finder on Android Market which will allow you to use the phone with ANY SIM card once you have rooted your phone.

The phone is one of the lightest and thinnest smartphones on the market and it runs on Android 2.3 with Samsung's own TouchWiz UI v4.0 user interface pasted all over it.

It packs a dual core Samsung Exynos 4210 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, complete with 1GB RAM, a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED WVGA capacitive touchscreen, an eight-megapixel camera with LED flash and 1080p HD recording, a front facing camera and a healthy range of connectivity features including Bluetooth 3.0, microUSB, NFC and Wi-Fi though no HDMI port.
